My precious friends and family,
It has been some months since my last update on the abduction of my two boys, Benjamin and Caelin, by my ex-husband in August 2012. At that time, my ex-husband took our children, then aged five and three respectively, to Portugal without my consent or knowledge. Numerous legal proceedings have occurred, but we have been waiting on my witness testimonials from South Africa for my Hague case to come to fruition. And the good news is that my original testimonials are being couriered from South Africa today and will arrive in Portugal this week. The criminal charges of sexual abuse of the boys were also dismissed by the court, with the judge being very clear she did not believe any of these charges.
I have been in Lisbon since early April, and arrived to the busyness of legal proceedings, parental conferences, psychological and social worker evaluations. My visitation rights were organized within a week of my arrival. I have blessedly been able to see the boys twice a week after school, taking them to a mall near their village, two hours from Lisbon. And they are now spending the weekends with me too, with this coming weekend being our third weekend together. They have a lot of emotional and psychological problems and my youngest son Caelin has numerous health issues, including asthma. I am both so sad for the boys and what they have been through and yet so delighted and grateful that I am getting this time to rebuild my relationship with my beautiful boys. I have had very little contact with the boys telephonically and they have been told many lies about me so they are not sure what to believe and do not yet trust me. However, I know that they feel my Love, and I know too that justice will prevail.
I have further attempted to create a bridge of goodwill with my ex-husband, and while this is going slowly, we are communicating with one another.
This part of the journey will come to an end soon, precious hearts, and the boys will be returned home wrapped in the wings of Angels, and our collective Love. It is my great hope that we will have a decision from the Portuguese family court early to mid-June, and I will stay in Lisbon until the court makes a ruling.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support in the sharing of my story. I truly appreciate you all so very much.
From my heart to your heart to the Cosmic Heart of All Creation.
Blessings and much Love
